This station tends to forecast a smidgen lower than others, but the one I usually check isn't updated. For this time of year, I won't quibble with a degree or two even if it means my flowers go away.

Pink Attraction. VERY short stalk, but if it can hang on long enough for the bloom to open, who cares?
Orange Harvest. Don't think that bud will open; however, I HAVE been surprised before.
Look at that crazy-color orange beard.
